    <font color="blue">Tel us something we don't know ! I hate mowing, but I'm glad when it's done and the yard looks great ! It's been raining for about a week now so it has to be mowed a lot ! </font color>

    I broke out the mower for the first time a few weeks ago. It is a self-propelled unit since we live on a hill and my yard is sloped. The bad part is that I broke the clutch disengagement cable off last year so the clutch won't disengage. Once it starts, it off to the races! It spring loaded and an enclosed unit, so I have to fix before my wife tries to use it...yeah right, like thatl'' happen anytime soon LOL!

    We have 5 acres. If you dont go the roundup route, get a tractor with a 6 foot finsh mower. Knock it out in now time.

    I have (okay John has but I use) a John Deere 365, power steering, cruise control, floating deck, beer holder- well it holds 2 beers, and a full tray of ice... best damn lawn mower I ever had! 1/2 acre of land- 13 minutes and the lawn is mowed! every 4 days...
